The demanding schedules of physical education teachers and coaches can make pursuing a Master’s degree a challenge. An online Master’s program offers the flexibility and convenience to balance work, family and your continuing education. The program is designed for individuals wishing to become a physical education professional or permanently certifying themselves as a physical educator.
You will research cutting edge topics in physical education instruction and learn to apply them to a physical education classroom setting. Coursework does not repeat information from undergraduate learning, but rather extends your study to the next level of learning.
While the program does not provide health education certification directly, you can take your undergraduate and graduate health credits to your respective state for health certification approval. You will complete a physical education electronic portfolio as a culmination of your degree including a mission statement, resume, sample lesson plans, and assignments associated with the program.
